i think im in one of the worst positions regarding Anderson and his night last night.
i had Anderson, in my starting lineup every day. i have been falling behind some in HR and wanted to add a hitter with HR power. Wily Mo Pena was available, and after hitting HR's in back to back games i dropped Garrett Anderson for Pena on Monday.. the damn day before Anderson gets on fire! Pena doesnt give me a HR and Anderson gets 2. you stupid bum, where the hell where you before Tuesday!
even after Andersons night i wouldnt expect him to continue that.

What it means: So that game accounted for 25% of his HRs (8) and 20% of his RBIs (50) for the entire season. Feel free to ignore this performance and look elsewhere for consistent contribution in the outfield.

Considering he's only got 295 ABs this year due to injury, those numbers don't tell the whole story.

At this pace in 485 ABs (~avg for top 50 hitters right now), he'd be at a more impressive 13hr / 82rbi / 74run / .281 total right now. Nick Markakis, Vernon Wells, and Eric Byrnes come to mind as comparables. A little behind Bobby Abreu, but not a ton.

He's viable in many leagues here on out, imo. He was a BIG TIME hitter not too long ago...

I tend to disagree. I think the goose is cooked here. I'm not quite sure what timescale you're using, but he hasn't been a BIG TIME hitter since 2003...quite average for the three years thereafter. Scioscia batting him in the run producing part of the order is all that's keeping him from being a very, very, empty .280 hitter.

I respect that you disagree. and yes, I meant "big time" back in 2003, but I'm not saying he's that kind of hitter anymore - I made the comparison to Byrnes, Wells, and Markakis - that's kind of hitter I think he'll be here out. Those guys are starting on a lot of teams in 10+ leagues.

Back in 2000-2003, when he was putting up 90run / 30hr / 120rbi / .300 seasons, he averaged 650 ABs a season (did he lead-off?). His numbers this year in 295 ABs extrapolated to 650 ABs are: 110run / 17hr / 99rbi / .281. If he plays regularly here out - and bats at at least a 550-600 AB/season pace from here out - which he should, that's production that should not be overlooked, imo.

No. He just never walked. Don't you think that there is a chance that you could be overvaluing this 1 game??

And still on the WW in 99.9% of leagues.

In my starting lineup in my Cafeholics League. *flex*

Who cares if I'm in 10th Place? Inconsequential!!!

I remember this night vividly. I had the #1 pick overall in '05. I was a fantasy rookie and chose Johan. (something I don't regret actually, ended up in 3rd place that year on the strength of my pitching). But a bunch of us were sitting around watching this game and the entire night I was taking serious heat for not picking ARod. He almost hit the home run cycle in that game. With each passing bomb I got more and more bashed.

This year I had #3 overall and took ARod. And we all know what he's doing.
